Cas Blomberg reading the rune stone at Botkyrka Kyrka, in Botkyrka, Sweden

I could tell you about my past. About my time as a police officer, or working for a greeting card company. I could tell you about the years I spent working for the newspaper. Or about how this southerner packed up everything and moved to Sweden. But that’s all in the past, and the past–well, the past can’t be changed until a working time machine pops up. Right here, right now, that’s what matters. Isn’t it?

This moment.

I won’t waste your time any more. I’m a writer.

Characters live in my head. Sometimes they fight, sometimes they scream, sometimes they laugh and sometimes they weep. They all have a story. My job is to write down those stories. Because they knew you’d be coming . . . and they want you to hear their voices, feel their hope, and fight their struggles with them.

Click on the Books page to find details about my published works and read about what I’m working on at the moment.

On the blog page you’ll find a slew of posts about life, culture, dreams, rants, and encouragement. I hope you’ll find something you like.

If you’re interested in a sample of my writing, check out Jakob’s Journal. I try to post new entries weekly.

A Short Look at Agendas

The past few months have been interesting. I’ve stuck to my plan, for the most part. But the plan changed. I knew it would. The plan always changes. It grows bigger. Curves down unexpected paths, and the chance to find honeysuckles or weeds is probably equal. If I’m lucky the path leads to an exciting … Continue reading

My Three Favorite Books on Writing

Ask any writer and they’ll tell you they have a favorite writing book. Most have more than one. By writing book, I mean anything you use as a resource to enhance, support, encourage, explain, or provide education about the craft of writing. Some are books that teach you how to harness your creativity, others talk … Continue reading

My writing group celebrates 20 years!

Last year I accomplished a lot in my writing world. I finished and self-published my first fantasy novel, Ashborne. I published my first short story, Orbital Extraction. I applied to a grant program. I took several courses related to the craft of writing, including a screenwriting course I never thought I’d take. I created a … Continue reading

My first signed Jim Butcher books

Jim Butcher came to Sweden! I love Jim Butcher. It wasn’t always that way. I hated him for a while, but now I love him. I guess hate is a strong word, and it’s not him personally I hated. I didn’t hate his stories either, or his writing. What drove me bonkers was how it felt … Continue reading

If you don’t have a Booklaunch page yet, you should!

Are you an author? Do you have a Booklaunch page? If you answered ‘yes’ to the first question, but ‘no’ to the second, you’re missing out. Despite their name, Booklaunch isn’t just a page for people ‘launching’ a new book. It’s a page for anyone who has written a book and is selling it on emarkets. … Continue reading

100 Great Quotes for Writers

100 posts! I can’t believe it. I’m not sure what the protocol is. Should I break out the rum or sit back with a warm latte and relax? Exactly how does one celebrate writing the 100th post?? I’ve been thinking about it for weeks. Not actively thinking about it, but letting ideas float around in … Continue reading

Thoughts on Terry Pratchett

I don’t normally do this, sit down and write without a purpose in mind. But today, I felt like I needed to. Last week, the world lost a funny, witty, talented, courageous, and all-around amazing author, and though I never met Terry Pratchett personally, I’m going to go ahead and assume, based on what I’ve … Continue reading
